Four DIT students, all graduate engineers; Cliona O'Sullivan, Nitish Kansal, Ahmed Fikry and Onyema Onyejekwe from Ireland, India, Egypt and Nigeria.
Declan Allen,Assistant Head of the School of Management who oversees the project states ''The Applied Consulting Project is an integral part of the MSc in Technology and Innovation Management requiring students to utilise the fundamental management skills and tools that they are taught in the classroom based element of the programme.
